Caring for the life within us and around us

At Cortiletto, we're more than just a place to stay - we're a sanctuary for environmentally conscious travellers seeking a meaningful connection with both the destination and the planet. In response to the urgent climate crisis, we've centred sustainability into the core of our boutique hotel experience. From the moment you step through our doors, you'll be enveloped in a sense of purposeful luxury that respects and preserves the natural beauty of our surroundings.

Our commitment to sustainability is evident in every detail of your stay. We've embraced innovative energy efficiency measures, such as solar water heaters and LED lighting, to minimise our environmental footprint without compromising on comfort. Our air conditioning system boasts cutting-edge inverter air technology and high-energy-class appliances, ensuring your stay is as eco-friendly as it is enjoyable.

But sustainability is more than just a buzzword for us - it's a way of life. We've carefully curated every aspect of your experience, from the non-toxic products in your room to the biodegradable packaging materials we use. Even your bed linen is thoughtfully chosen and reused upon request, reducing waste and preserving precious resources.

And it doesn't stop there. Our dedication to sustainability extends to the very heart of our community. Each morning, you'll awaken to a sumptuous Cretan breakfast featuring fresh fruits and vegetables sourced directly from local producers. By savouring traditional dishes based on the Mediterranean diet, you're not just nourishing your body - you're supporting the local economy and preserving centuries-old culinary traditions.

But perhaps our greatest contribution to sustainability lies in our commitment to experiential tourism. We invite you to immerse yourself in the rich biodiversity of Rethymno's hinterland, explore its majestic gorges, mountains, and sea, and discover the authentic Cretan way of life alongside our vibrant local community.

At Cortiletto, sustainability isn't just a choice - it's our collective responsibility. By choosing to stay with us, you're not just choosing a place to rest your head - you're choosing to make a positive impact on the world around you. Welcome to a new era of mindful travel, where lavishness meets sustainability and every stay is a step towards a brighter future.
